Service-Learning to Advance Social Justice in a Time of Radical Inequality

Edited by Alan S. Tinkler, Barri E. Tinkler, Jean R. Strait & Virginia M. Jagla

We seek submissions to advance our understanding and knowledge of service-learning, particularly those that address social justice in a time of radical inequality. We are looking for deep critical thinking and analysis in all submissions. In addition to theoretical papers, we desire submissions that employ methodological rigor. We seek to answer the question: How does service-learning work to advance social justice in a time of radical inequality? We intend to frame social justice by addressing three (overlapping) human concerns: 1) access to meaningful educational opportunity, 2) ability to earn a reasonable income and enjoy financial stability, and 3) opportunity for wellness, including access to health care.

Deadlines: Intent to submit a manuscript, including a working title and 100-150 word abstract, should be sent to Alan Tinkler ( by July 15, 2014. Complete manuscripts are due by September 1, 2014. All manuscripts will be submitted to the volume’s editorial review board and undergo blind review.

Prospective reviewers for the 2015 volume, please contact Virginia Jagla at
